Colouring Book Theatre: Horror

Horror (1982), World Publishers
It's weird to be doing a Colouring Book Theatre on a Friday but this October and this is one of the coolest colouring books I've ever found.

I discovered this in a shop called Planet of Stuff and bought it unopened mainly because it had Peter Cushing as Arthur Grimsdyke on the cover!

The content is just as grisly and gory.

Grab your (red) crayons  and join me after the jump

Just another shot at that cover and it's mish mosh of horror images from Hammer, Universal and Amicus.

The guts of the book are mainly reworked images from stills, some are recognizable, others have been reworked a little but you know the vibe. This one is pretty easy.

Getting an Igrid Pitt vibe here, I could be wrong.

Even Henry Hull, I cannot love this book more. Wish I knew who the artist was.

Wow, what a great coloring (or colouring) book! I believe the "Basil Rathbone?" picture is supposed to be David Warner, as "Evil" from "Time Bandits".

I had this colouring book. It had a picture of two werewolves. That's what bought me here I'm trying to find the picture but it's not on here

Greetings, I would have loved this Horror Colouring Book as a wee horror and monster mad boy growing up in Wales during the late 1970s and early 80s.
I believe the witch-like woman is Barbara Steele (Black Sunday, 1960), rather than Ingrid Pitt. 'Fangs' for bringing it to our attention.
